I love Newport because of the rich history and beautiful historic estates. I photographed these beautiful twins at the Elm’s mansion located on Bellevue. As we were shooting I couldn’t help but think of Downton Abbey! Two sisters in their cotton garden gowns frolicking about the yard. These beautiful natural cotton wedding dresses were designed and made by the The Cotton Bride. Their cotton couture gowns are completely hand-made in New York City. The gowns being work (in order of appearance) are Myrium in Champagne {my favorite} | Rahel in Champagne | Melissa in White | Jozanne in Off-White. Shout-out to Anna Dunn who did the girls hair!

This past weekend I got to photograph a Castle Hill Inn proposal in Newport, RI. David and Karen are from New York City and thought they would take a quick little getaway to Newport! Karen thought the trip was to celebrate David’s birthday but she was in for a surprise! I love her reaction as David bends down on to one knee and whispers the words “Will You Marry Me!?” The ring is a very special ring because the center stone is a diamond that was past down through the family from her great-grandmother. {I love family heirlooms!} David had the diamond reset and added the other two gorgeous diamonds. Ah-mazing! Congratulations Karen & David!

Greg (AKA Case) and I have known each other since our photography days at Northeastern University. I was so excited when he told me he was engaged and he wanted me to photograph their wedding! Greg and Angela live in Boston so it seemed fitting we took their engagement photos in a few of their favorite places. We started the session off with a few photos of them and their adorable pug Izzy. We headed over to the Christian Science Center for a few photos where the light was absolutely gorgeous. To finish the session we walked along the Charles River to watch the beautiful sunset. Greg & Angela, I can’t wait for your fall wedding!

I’m so excited to have been accepted to be a member of the Berkshire Wedding Collective! I love shooting out in the Berkshires as the history is as rich as Newport’s and the venues are exquisite. I like to think of the Berkshires as the Newport of the mountains. :)

The Berkshire Wedding Collective was started by Tara Consolati of Tara Consolati, marketing + pr.  She wanted to create a wedding  “concierge” service, located right in the heart of the Berkshires. {Brilliant!}  So if you’re getting married or know someone getting married in the Berkshires contact Tara and she will put together the best wedding team to suit your style.

Last week she had a Launch party which was held in Lenox, MA which I was happy to be apart of and to photograph! Thank you Tara and to all the amazing vendors who made the evening a success.
